After booking via eco-culture for a gift for our friends, it was an easy decision to use Robert & the team for our own Tour. We combined a prison island tour with a stone town tour. Worked out to our benefit. Our guide, Moosa kept us informed & interested & we even got to do some snorkeling. The stone town... More

We booked a day tour with Eco Culture Tours, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Our correspondence via email was seamless. We met our guide Said at the cruise port. He was an excellent guide. We had a separate driver, so Said was able to direct his attention to us. Our tour included Jozani Forest, a spice farm, local market and Stonestown. Said was... More

Eco & Cultural Tours seem to provide a way to learn and participate with locals and contribute - not to the large establishments - but to those in the villages and communities. Of their available tours, we took in the city tour, spice tour, the Swahili lunch, and the Unguja Ukuu boat tour! We didn't deal directly with this organization,... More

We paid a total of 100 USD for a trip to Jozani. Our driver could hardly speak any English, he was kind enough, but there was no conversation. Upon arrival you get a guide (who expect a tip after the tour) and we got tagged onto another family and we saw about 10 cute monkeys! That is 10 USD per... More

They are based in Zanzibar, but also organise Safaris at a competitive rate. The organisation was very professional; I dealt with Robert, the Reservations and Marketing Manager and he answered all of my pre-trip questions promptly and clearly. Pre-trip I was nervous about transferring money before getting there (as I would be for any company), but there are so many... More

Organising the tours was an easy task. The tour operator was friendly and was able to answer every question. We just walked in and paid half deposit there, and the remaining half at the end of the tour. Our tour guide was nice but lacking a lot of personality and was a little boring because of it. Tried to lighten... More

We wanted to do a few tours with a local company and not with the tour operator we booked our holiday with as the money goes towards the local people and villages. This company was brilliant tailoring our trips to our needs and want we wanted to do. We did a two day spice tour traditional Swahili lunch in a... More

We organised a safari from the UK with Robert at Eco & Culture Tours back in July. Everything went smoothly and we would recommend their services. Through them we met Kassim, our guide to the turtle island. It was a pleasure to meet him, a very experienced guide and a local of the area. If you go to Jambiani try... More
